Def get in touch with Sean Lally, he's the teacher who runs the Computers for kids program, we received a computer from them last year! I grew up in Lansdowne, we now live in Dundalk though as its even too expensive to live in Lansdowne. I do know another AWESOME resource is CAN (Community Assistance Network) they help with food, bge and eviction issues! Good Luck and thx for the info on Comcast!!

Sincerely,Jenni

Good Day,
Hi my name is Suezette. I am a young 44 year old who has been looking for employment for almost a year now. Applying for employment has been extremely difficult not having a computer and internet access. I am a certified DA and have been employed as one for 22 years of my life. A few months ago I was evicted and had to start living from my daughters apt. to my sons apt. I am in desperate need of a laptop computer to obtain employment so I can get a house for me and my three dogs ASAP. I am going to have to give my two big dogs up if I don't start working real soon. I am crying thinking about having to do that to them, there both so spoiled. If I had a laptop to access the internet for employment EVERY DAY, send out my resume throughout each day and have access to my email for replies. I would be successful in obtaining employment soon. I get State assistance for food and have no money.
If any one can help me with a laptop or know of any where I can get donated laptop. Please let me know...I stay in Phoenix, Az.

Sincerely,

Desperate, {I Love My Dogs}

have you tried the goodwill or the slavation army? sometimes they have donated computes, monitors, keyboards, ect there...and for very cheep. there's a service through social services near where i live that offers internet service thru comcast for low income families for just 10 dollars a month. and they also provide the computers for under 150.00 dollars..its just a one time price. they'll sedn some one out to hook it up and show you how to use it and everything. hope this helps some.

I am a hospice social worker, in West Virginia, who has a family with a 6th grader in the home. His mother is terminal, with cancer and his father has quit work to stay home to care for his wife. This 6th grader is getting behind in school; there is an "at home" program that can be utilized on a laptop. The problem is: the family can not afford a laptop for this student. Due to his care for his mother and his need to care for her, as well, there is an opportunity for him to catch up and keep up with his studies at home with this laptop. Is there any way you can help this 6th grader.

Can you or anyone ples help my family in any way. Thank You and God Bless You All.

Hi,
I am a mother of four children, 3 school aged and one toddler, and sadly we have recently found ourselves in some pretty serious financial hardships. Two yrs ago we lost our car since we could not pay our insurance any longer and 13 months ago we lost our home. I am living with a friend right now who struggles as well, living paycheck to paycheck. I do receive some assistance from my local DSS, medicaid and Energy Assistance as well as FSP. I live in Baltimore County, Maryland and am having a VERY difficult time finding help locating free computers to low income families in our state. If anyone can offer any type of assistance or has any connections please let me know ASAP. My son already has had one paper missed from the lack of research materials and he is in 8th grade this year so this is a VERY important time. His grades and school record will reflect the high school and college oppurtunities made available to him. Please msg me thru cris0915@comcast.net (as I do not have a constant internet connection it could take me a day or two to ck the email but i will return msgs as quickly as possible). Thanks so very much, from me and my family. Our deepest regards, C Johnson
